Global health projects and opportunities

The Department of Family Medicine is involved in collaborative projects both locally and abroad. The international initiatives are focused on capacity building in primary care in low and mid-resource countries, in urban and rural settings alike. Our departmental faculty plays an important mentorship role in all of these projects.
